Just Another Meatless Monday #45 Vegetarian Lettuce Boats

Hey What's For Dinner


I was making another batch of the Vegan Meat Substitute today when I got really inspired to whip up a couple of lettuce wraps. I rustled up a package of romaine hearts from the fridge, used some winter salsa and made a couple of 'meat' filled boats topped with salsa. I decided what they really needed was a drizzle of easy peanut sauce so I mixed up a quick batch of peanut sauce too. My husband eating a regular flour tortilla burrito looked on enviously so I shared with him. On his next burrito he added a dash of peanut sauce, he said it was great, I was too satisfied with my vegetarian lettuce boats to try his. We'll take his word on it, he has good taste, he married me. HA!

Vegetarian Lettuce Boats-serves two
8 romaine leaves
2 cups Vegan Meat Substitute
Quick Peanut Sauce

wash and dry your lettuce leaves, cut off about 1 inch on the bottom
lay them on a plate
quickly heat the 'meat' in a frying pan, stirring as needed
divide the meat evenly into the lettuce leaves
serve with sauces


The Winter Salsa and Peanut Sauce can be subbed out for your favorite sauce of course. They will both last in the fridge for 3-4 days so if you make them you'll have delicious sauces to use. The peanut sauce can be made with milk but then it wouldn't be completely vegan, just an FYI there.
